What we're about

Please click here for our mailing list!  Welcome. I'm so glad you found us... Welcome to SMWSLT. Our group is alive and well and growing by leaps and bounds. We host both online and live events, mostly but not exclusively in the Orange County area.

I have been so touched by the intimacy and connections that are being created ongoingly through our group interactions. Lots of close friendships and circles have been made and yes, even some romance! I try to mix it up and keep it interesting and I’m always open to new ideas and feedback. My commitment to every member is that there are no "outsiders" and all folks that identify as a woman loving women are welcome. I believe that the experience of feeling welcome and included is palpable in our group events whether live or on Zoom.

As of 2022, I am now leading groups to Greece once or twice a year. Please check out my travel website at lesbiangetaways.com for upcoming trip info. We still have a few spots open for the end of May, 2023. You can watch a video presentation on the home page if you like.

For FB users, please follow us (facebook.com/somanywomensolittletime/). If you would like to be part of our secret FB or our So Cal Lesbian Pickleballers group, please email me at cooljode@gmail.com. Once in, you can invite your friends directly from there.

I would love it if you joined the smwslt mailing list. This separates out our special announcements from all the other meetup emails which can be overwhelming at times. I ask that you please set your notifications at minimum to receive organizer messages and new event announcements. This has to be done while actually on our group site. You can find the settings by clicking on your round profile photo on the top right corner and select email and notifications.

I am so looking forward to meeting you whether it be online or in person when that time comes.

With Enthusiasm, 
Your organizer, Jody

Lets read...Summer Fate

Link visible for attendees

Hello book lovers! Let’s read and discuss – Summer Fate, by Emma Nichols. - Laugh out loud as you immerse yourself in the antics of the Duckton-by-Dale villagers and watch Harriet & Grace’s romance blossom...

Grace has it all. At least she did until a moment of indiscretion threatens to destroy her career.

With everything in London at stake and her fate in the Board's hands, she escapes to her Aunt's house in the Lake District - the perfect place to hide from her secrets and to get some much-needed peace and quiet.

But Duckton-by-Dale is nothing like she remembered and she certainly didn't expect to be attracted to her new neighbour, Harriet. But then she also didn't expect her world to be turned upside down by the quirky ensemble of villagers who plot to give love a helping hand. What could possibly go wrong?

· 276 pages. (8 hours and 26 minutes on audio.) Plan accordingly.

Ready for summer romance and laughter! - Jo Jo 😊

Please be prompt, at 7 pm Pacific, and plan to stay until we close out as a group or at 8:30 pm Pacific. We open with a short icebreaker within a few minutes of the start time, which is great for getting to know one another better. Arriving late or leaving early “individually” can distract the group discussion, so arriving on time and staying until 8:30 pm Pacific, is appreciated. We do occasionally stay later but if you need to bow out then, no worries. And…we could finish early. (Early has not happened, but I am just saying it could. Lol.)

* It is a social event so please have your video ON. It is also for transparency and peace of mind for all our members in this Zoom world.

WHERE: Zoom - Attendees will receive a private link and password on the day of the event. I will post a comment when I have sent it. Please do not share or post the link or your password.

Make sure your Meet Up notification setting for email is on for this group. (If you saw this book discussion announced via email, your setting is on. ;))

Bring your sweet self, any notes that you may want to share, and your favorite beverage. :)

- YES RSVPs, if you can't make it, please take a moment to change your RSVP to NOT GOING asap. It is just a courteous thing to do. :)

** If you are new to zoom, watch this video. Make sure to watch the video to the end. (A little over 5 minutes.) A senior does a great job of showing the various items you will want to know about. It is easy! Really. https://youtu.be/kh50kVaIdAY

Link visible for attendees

7:00-9:30 pm eastern; 4:00 - 6:30 pm pacific

It's hard to believe that each of these has been better than the last, so So Many Women...So Little Time is excited to see what happens again with our collaboration with Les Ladies of the DC Metro area. Yes, it's Erotica Extravaganza #6!

ALL THINGS EROTIC (Open Mic Style)! Whether it's an amorous reading, poetry, song, dancing, art, photography or whatever else you can imagine, we invite you to share with us. It can be original work or someone else's masterpiece. Let's share and celebrate our secret lesbian erotic fantasies, romantic desires or sensual works!

Please limit your presentation to approximately 2-5 minutes.

You don't have to do a presentation to come to the event. Appreciative audience members are quite welcome!! Be prepared to moan in appreciation!

We invite and encourage you to wear something that you consider erotic: leather, lace, latex, silk, whatever it is for you (optional). We kick off the evening with a fashion show--spotlighting these hot, sexy outfits (with your consent of course).

Video cameras must be ON to participate in this event.

  • Spoiler alert, this will be an event that includes sexual themes, some kink and fantasies are among the possibilities.

PERFORMERS: Please email your event host ([masked] or [masked] if you're from SMWSLT) before the event to secure your time slot and to help us determine the most fabulous line up to keep you on the edge of your seats!

We ask for a suggested donation of $11, $22 or $33, whichever you can afford. The So Many Women So Little Time proceeds goes to offsetting the cost of zoom and meetup for Jody Potiker. We also can discuss donations to a charitable cause as part of this event--email Jody your ideas. Please Venmo Jody @Jody-Potiker preferably before or on the day of the event.

See you there for another exciting and intimate event!
